John Suarez, Institute for Civic Engagement, conducted his workshop, “Build Organizational Capacity: Invert the Triangle” at SUNY’s 5th Annual Applied Learning Conference.   

Thirty-nine participants role-played situations in which directors of organizations can gain control by relinquishing control. Directors can relinquish (some) control when they trust their interns with specific responsibilities and authority; interns will reciprocate with innovative ideas and progress toward organizations’ missions. The associate director of SUNY’s SAIL Institute for Academic and Innovative Leadership is using this workshop’s materials as guides in designing a workshop for department chairs.
